Fees

AS OF JULY 1, 2018

I - GENERAL PRINCIPLES

We support you throughout your legal operations by taking charge of drafting your documents, as well as handling the formalities related to these documents. Our fees, therefore, include the drafting and formalities; however, the costs themselves are, of course, not included.

1°/ Hourly Rates: The hourly billing for all the Lawyers of the Firm applies to all services and procedures not subject to a flat-rate pricing, as determined below. The applied hourly rate depends on the nature of the services. Thus, appointments and consultations without opening a file are billed at a rate of €160 excl. tax/hour. For drafting documents and tax declarations, an hourly rate of €120 excl. tax/hour is applied. Research, preparatory work, and specific calculations are billed at a reduced rate of €80 excl. tax/hour. A monthly subscription service for the year, encompassing all services (advice, drafting, phone interviews, etc.), can be set up based on an average billing rate of €140 excl. tax/hour.

2º/ Fees are always established excl. tax, costs, and expenses. Fees and expenses are subject to VAT at the prevailing rate (20%).

Chancery fees (otherwise known as file fees) are subject to separate pricing, established either as a flat fee (€50 for AGMs) or based on actual expenses (photocopies, registered mail, etc.).

The provision of registers is billed at €50 excl. tax per register. Travel expenses are calculated based on the kilometric allowance scale defined by the tax administration or actual costs (SNCF/plane).
